Chad Ochocinco and fiancee Evelyn Lozada sleep with the fishes

Life is good for New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco.

Consider it a winter home to house the couple when they’re not living under the sea at Ochocinco’s permanent Florida home.

Last week, the Boston Herald chatted up Wayde King and Brett Raymer — the stars of Animal Planet’s new reality show, “Tanked” — who installed two custom fish tanks for Ochocinco.

How long will it take for the novelty to wear off (or a crack to form)? Back in February, Lozada was still quite enamored with Ochocinco’s aquatic world. Chad tweeted: @Evelynlozada stares at these damn fish every time before bed #smh
